With a smorgasbord of action taking place across Europe, there are plenty of profit-exploiting opportunities for the punters prepared to cast their line into the continental pool to take advantage of.
Of the medley of matches, we’ve picked out a tasty treble that pays out a smidge north of the 12/1 mark, starting in the Kingdom of Calcio.
Cesena v AC Milan – Over 2.5 goals @ 19/20
The Rossoneri’s two sojourns beyond the confines of the San Siro have yielded a total of 13 goals; they followed up their 5-4 win at Parma with a 2-2 draw against Empoli last time out.
This almost-evens offering appears particularly generous given that Filippo Inzaghi’s men closed the previous campaign with five overs outings from their final eight away days.
Further encouragement supporting this bet copping comes in the form of Cavallucci Marini having participated in three straight this term in which the goal line in question has been crossed.
Real Sociedad v Valencia – Either side to win by one goal @ 13/10
Los Che are in excellent form and have to be fancied to win this one.
If they are to prevail though – and one side will based on the fact that there’s been no draws in eight straight between the pair – it’s likely to be by one goal.
The destination of the spoils has been settled by a solitary strike in six of the past seven renewals the duo have contested, as was the case in five of the seven matches Sociedad concluded the 2013/14 campaign with at the San Sebastian.
Marseille v St Etienne – Marseille win to nil @ 29/10
Given Les Verts goalscoring aversion, this rates at a fantastic bet.
L’OM have taken no time to acclimatise to Marcelo Bielsa’s methods and have won each of their last five in scaling to the summit of Ligue 1.
Across this flawless quintet, Evian’s injury-time consolation goal was all they’ve conceded.
St Etienne shouldn’t pose their reinforced defence too many questions considering they’ve not bagged in three of their last four road games, scoring just one in total away from home.
